Golden Ring Awards ~ October 2, 1999

As I have observed in previous postings, it is interesting that people and events from various periods of my life have been reappearing in the last two or three years. I was surfing through YouTube a few days ago and discovered an event I was involved with in 1999.

It was early in 1999 that Jeff Adachi approached me about scoring the theme song for the Asian American Arts Foundation's awards ceremony to be held on October 2nd of that year. At that time he was a deputy public defender with the San Francisco Public Defender’s Office. He later became Public Defender of the City and County of San Francisco.

While working on and researching the music for the production I had the opportunity to meet many interesting people. It was a role call of luminaries.

The presentation of awards was captured on video and and I found they now can be seen on YouTube. There are 18 videos in all. Below are links to those videos of the honorees, presenters and performers of that event, the 1999 awards ceremony of the Asian American Arts Foundation.

Enjoy, Styrous®
